Appalachian Lullaby

I am overwhelmed with love right now. My heart is exploding! Let me share...
My nightly routine with Sara goes like this: I nurse Sara, and then put her to bed. Most nights she is so tired that she falls asleep in my arms before I even get her to her crib. For the past few nights I have been playing this new CD of lullabies that she got from her aunt Diane for Christmas. It has the most precious songs on it, and I find myself in tears by the time I put Sara to bed. I wanted to share the lyrics of my favorite song that makes me cry every night! :)

Appalachian Lullaby

Well I love my baby
Sweet and fair
You've got the sky in your eyes
The sun in your hair
I rock you to sleep most every night
While I hold you tight

Sleep my baby
The angels keep you from harm
And your Father above
Cradles you in His love
Safe and warm
Sleep my baby
Nestled in your mama's arms
Sleep my baby
The angels keep you from harm

My baby
You'll be sleepin' soon
Kissed by the golden stars and moon
I have just one wish for you
May your every dream come true

Are you crying yet? I am! You can probably guess the line that gets me every time is, "nestled in your mama's arms". This song is just a special reminder of how blessed I am. I cherish the moments I have with my Sara, especially when I get to watch her fall asleep. She is sweet, beautiful, funny, cute, I could go on forever. She is a gift from God and I thank Him for her every day. I love being Sara's mom. That is why my heart is exploding with love :)
